The market for Tony Romo appears to be dwindling even before the start of free agency. Expected to be traded or released here soon, the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs were among the teams on Romo’s wish list following this past season (more on that here).
While Houston and Denver remain very much alive in the sweepstakes, it appears that Kansas City has dropped out of the running.
According to NFL Media’s James Palmer (h/t Pro Football Talk), Kansas City is no longer interested in the former Pro Bowl signal caller.
This really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. While the Chiefs have been linked to a couple quarterbacks available on the trade market, the team’s brass has given Alex Smith a vote of confidence for the 2017 season.
As it relates to Romo, there’s been widespread speculation that he will end up on either Denver or Houston here soon. It just remains to be seen whether that will come via a trade or free agency.
The NFL league years begins Thursday afternoon, at which point this entire situation might be clarified.
